Learning to Reconnect

Hello! This is my first post in this subreddit. I am Jewish (ethnically) and very fondly remember celebrating Hanukkah as a child with my grandparents. Unfortunately after my grandfather passed away my family hasn’t celebrated since. In the past couple of years I have become estranged from my father (my Jewish parent). I have always enjoyed knowing my families history and while I know a lot about my mother’s side, I know nothing about my father’s side. Other than celebrating major holidays are there other ways that I can connect with my heritage? I had a Star of David necklace as a child, but I’m not sure if that is something that is appropriate for me to wear now since I am (somewhat) non-practicing.

Please please please let me know if any of this is insensitive or harmful, as that is not my intention.
